Pressure Management

Over many decades, water distribution networks are exposed to permanent strain, e.g. by frost, road traffic, earth movements and water pressure. The consequences are material fatigue, cracks, leakage – and thus water losses. The major part of the losses is not caused by large pipe bursts but by the great number of minor leaks. According to experts’ estimates, about one third of the available drinking water resources is lost while the water is being transported to the end consumer. This results in enormous financial losses. Additionally, the scarcity of valuable drinking water becomes worse in dry regions. If world-wide losses could be halved, this alone would make the drinking water supply of an additional 90 million people possible. 

Trying to detect and eliminate all leaks can usually neither be realised nor financed. And if, besides that, a part of the leaks is eliminated, the pressure exerted on the remaining ones rises and increases the loss there.

VAG Pressure Management deals with precisely the opposite: It reduces the water pressure in the pipeline network in dependence of demand or consumption periods
